(KSL News) Candidate for Salt Lake City Mayor Jenny Wilson has joined the growing list of public officials demanding Real Salt Lake turn over money for a youth soccer complex.

As part of a deal with lawmakers to fund the stadium, RSL promised to kick in $7.5 million for a sports complex that included dozens of soccer fields. But recently, the team referred to the deal as an "investment" with details still to be worked out. Wilson questions if Real will make good on its word.

Jenny Wilson says, "I believe frankly this deal, this plan, when it comes to Real's side of things, isn't as solid as it needs to be, or we would be further along. Frankly, at this stage I've got to wonder whether or not Real can make this work."

Wilson says she thinks that if the team doesn't hand over the money in one month, the state should pull the plug on the deal.
